Cradle Mountain is Tasmania’s foremost natural icon and marks the beginning of the world-renowned “Overland Track”.
The Overland Track is a 65 km (40 mi) bushwalking track that traverses through the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area within Cradle Mountain – Lake St. Clair National Park. The Overland Track finishes at Lake St. Clair and takes approximately 5-6 days to complete. It features a variety of different landscapes, including buttongrass moorlands, temperate rainforests and rugged mountain peaks and is home to many precious endemic and endangered plants and animals, such as Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles and 1000+ year old King Billy pines. Like the rest of our alpine areas, Cradle Mountain frequently experiences harsh, rainy, windy weather year round, and snowstorms can strike in any month of the year.
The Overland Track is a symbol of our true, untamed Tasmanian wilderness.
